Little Hero or Diesel 60

I disagree whoe heartedly. Hands down the Little Hero over the Remix. It is an tremedous boat that will last you forwever. You may never need another boat. Another excellent choice is the Diesel.

Diesel all the way. Paddled mine everywhere from Clear Creek to the Upper Animas to the Futa in Chile. Super friendly, stable, and easy to roll.

Dude, No one can tell you what boat will suit you best. It's all in what feels good to you, and makes you comfortable in the water. Both are excellent boats and you'll get a-lot of different opinions from peoples own experiences. But that is there experiences not yours. If your going to invest in a good boat take a few demos out for a try. That's the only way to know what works for you the best.

And remember: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in hand, body throughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, WHOOHOO - WHAT A RIDE!

Little hero if you think you will be river running only, and small ammo if you think you will want to surf while you are getting down the river. Try them all though and see what you like.
